BA, MLS, Indiana University; MA Italian, Middlebury

My passions are anything Italian, travel, spending time at the ocean, dogs, writing letters, music of just about all kinds but especially folk and bluegrass.  I own hundreds of LPs, cassettes, and even CD’s now!
I’ve lived in Indiana; Arkansas; Bologna, Italy; Boston, Missouri; Florence, Italy; Syracuse; and Maryland before moving to Vermont 16 years ago.

In addition to my library years I have worked as a linguist for the federal government and I teach and tutor Italian.
You can be entertained for hours if you ask me about my hitchhiking adventures around Europe East and West!

Currently I am reading Jill Ker Conway's The Road from Coorain about Conway's experences as first woman president of Smith College.  I have just begun Rise and Shine, a novel by Anna Quindlan.  Coming up are Donna Leon's murder mystery set in Venice, Through A Glass, Darkly and Elmore Leonard's book Cuba Libre.

At the end of May I will commune with the ocean as I ponder this quote "Looking at the Ocean is the Sacramentalization of the Ordinary."

Have a happy summer!!
